The Society for Mathematical Psychology promotes the advancement and communication of research in mathematical psychology and related disciplines. Mathematical psychology is broadly defined to include work of a theoretical character that uses mathematical methods, formal logic, or computer simulation. The Society journal is the Journal of Mathematical Psychology.

The Department of Psychology in collaboration with the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences Diversity Postdoctoral Fellowship Program at The Ohio State University supports promising scholars who are committed to diversity in the academy and to prepare those scholars to enter tenure track faculty positions. We are particularly interested in receiving applications from individuals who are members of groups that historically have been underrepresented in the American professoriate.

Fellows will be affiliated with one of our six core graduate programs (behavioral neuroscience, clinical, cognitive, developmental, quantitative, or social). Fellows also have the opportunity to participate in the activities of the Kirwan Institute for Race and Ethnicity, a multidisciplinary center founded jointly by the Colleges of Social and Behavioral Sciences; Humanities; and Law.

Eligibility: Applicants must have completed all requirements for a doctoral degree in psychology by August 2010. Preference will be given to individuals who are within five years of their degree. Applicants must be committed to an academic career. Applicants must be a citizen of the United States.

Awards: Up to three fellowships will be awarded. The appointments are intended for two years, with re-appointment for the second year contingent upon a successful performance review. The appointments will begin in September 2010. The fellowships provide a $40,000 annual stipend, university medical benefits, and some support for travel and research expenses.

Application Process: Required application materials: (1) Applicants should identify one or more faculty in the psychology department who could serve as a mentor (; (2) a curriculum vitae; (3) a one page dissertation abstract; (4) a statement outlining the specific research proposed to be undertaken during the Fellowship period, and the significance of that research (four-page limit, double-spaced); (5) a personal statement describing the applicant’s background and commitment to the goal of diversity in higher education (three-page limit, double-spaced). Applicants should submit all of these materials electronically in Microsoft Word. (Please identify all of the documents with the last name and document type, e.g., smithcv.doc or smithresearchstatement.doc.) In addition, three letters of recommendation should be submitted electronically.
